At the Estadio del Mediterráneo stadium in Almería, Spain, on January 26, Almería and Deportivo Alavés will square off for a LaLiga fixture.
Almeria led Real Madrid 2-0 at halftime thanks to goals from Largie Ramazani and Edgar Gonzalez, putting them on course for what would have been a historic victory at Bernabeu in their last game. But in the second half, Jude Bellingham and Vinicius Junior gave Carlo Ancelotti’s team a point each, and in the 99th minute, Dani Carvajal sealed the victory for the home team. They are 10 points behind 17th-placed Sevilla and are currently at the bottom of the table with 6 points due to their record of 0 wins, 6 draws, and fifteen losses. However, they recently held leaders Girona to a scoreless tie at home and can gain a lot of confidence from their matchup with Real Madrid. Almeria has only triumphed once in their previous 9 meetings across all competitions versus Deportivo Alaves.
After making it back to La Liga via the Segunda Division playoffs the previous season, Alaves’ primary goal for the current campaign is to escape relegation; hence, any finish higher than 18th would be deemed successful. Nevertheless, they have outperformed expectations in the 2023–24 season, amassing 23 points from 21 games to occupy the 12th spot in the standings, just 3 points off of Getafe in 10th. After losing 1-0 at home to Real Madrid on December 21, Luis Garcia’s team hasn’t lost since. In their first game of 2024, they drew 1-1 with Real Sociedad before winning consecutive games against Sevilla and Cadiz. Last time out, Alaves defeated Cadiz thanks to a penalty kick in the 2nd half; so far in the 2023–24 season, Alaves have taken 5 of their ten home league games. Alaves cannot take this game for granted as Almeria have a lot of confidence right now.
